One trick my grandmother told me about, is save the water after hard boiling eggs. When the water cools, use it as a fertilizer for all of your plants. Its a great alternative to chemical fertilizers.

Hello Patrica

Yes eggshells are good for your tomato plants we use eggshell on our tomato plants when we first plant them it gives them a better taste I believe. Crush eggshell and place in hole with your tomato plant.
